The Old Reddman Place by TheEchoDragon The Old Reddman Place by TheEchoDragon

Old man Reddman was famous in the town. He moved there in his twenties and settled on the outskirts, driving in each day to teach at the local school. Eventually he became principal and when he retired he ran for mayor and won. He spoke about his wife often and on the rare occasion she was seen it was always in their house, staring vacantly out the windows at onlookers. 


But by now Reddman was old and his health was failing him. The rumors were he had cancer and he wanted to make a difference in the town he loved before it was too late.
Then, one night, a few days before halloween, Reddman phoned the local police station saying he had come home to find his wife dead in the living room. The police came and took the body away but they say he went mad with grief after that and killed himself. 

On all hallows eve his neighbours reported lots of strange noises coming from his home and when they arrived at the scene they found his charred body in front of the fireplace. Stranger still, when they contacted his wife's family to arrange a funeral for the couple they told them that she had been dead for many years, but that the culprit had never been found. And when they checked again at the morgue they discovered no recent record of a woman's body had ever been made. 

Some people say that the murderer came back to finish the job after finally tracking Mr Reddman down, thanks to his public campaign. But others think Reddman killed his wife years ago, that the police had made a mistake with the woman's body and that on that particular halloween, the former Mrs Reddman had come back for revenge.

Happy Halloween everyone!
